Lufthansa Cargo is to add a new 777F to its fleet, with delivery expected before the end of this year.

    The addition of the 777F will bring Lufthansa Cargo’s in-service fleet of full freighters to 15.

    “We are very pleased that we will be able to offer our customers additional freighter capacity in the future. The Corona crisis has impressively underlined how important these aircraft are for global supply,” said Lufthansa Cargo’s chief executive officer Dorothea von Boxberg.

    The twin-engine 777F has a standard payload capacity of 103 metric tons with a range of more than 9,000 kilometres.

    In March, Lufthansa Cargo announced the fourteenth aircraft of this type for autumn 2021.
